ST Marine Delivers Its First Seismic Survey Vessel to Swire Pacific Offshore Operations (Singapore)

 

ST Marine has delivered its first seismic survey vessel to Swire Pacific Offshore Operations.

In December 2008, ST Marine announced the S$30 million (US$24 million) contract to provide detailed design and to construct the 68-metre vessel for Swire. Work commenced in 2009.

The contract from Swire was awarded on the back of a charter that Swire secured from CGG Veritas.

Swire provided the basic design and major equipment, including the seismic survey equipment for the vessel.

The 68.0- by 17.4 metre vessel, equipped with two medium-speed diesel engines of 2,880kW each, was designed and constructed in compliance with the rules and regulations of the American Bureau of Shipping (ABS). The vessel, named ‘Pacific Finder’, carries the ABS Class Notation +A1, +AMS, ACCU, E and Ice D0. The vessel also complies with the latest IMO MSC.266 (84) Code of Safety for Special Purpose Ships, 2008.

‘Pacific Finder’, a four-streamer vessel, is to be deployed to carry out marine seismic survey in shallow waters for oil and gas clients in the Asia Pacific region. The seismic survey vessel is capable of sailing at a select “survey speed” through the water with the hull and propulsion characteristics designed to produce low wake field turbulence while the survey is carried out.
